A While back i told all of y’all how i was trying to collect all the Rookie of the Year award winners on autographed balls. I had a long and hard road to making this happen, knowing that some of the graphs i would never be able to get. But i wanna see how far i can go with it so this year i’m all in again. On Tuesday i got a package in the mail from former great pitcher Gregg Olson. Olson played for a number of teams but is most remembered for being an Oriole. Olson became the first reliever to win the American League Rookie of the Year Award. Olson also set an American League rookie record with 27 saves, and had a 5-2 mark with a 1.69ERA and 90 strikeouts in 85 innings. Also on July 13, 1991, Olson combined with 3 other Baltimore pitchers in a no-hitter against the Oakland Athletics. Olsen was nice enough to return my ball is 10 days.

So with this ball my total is at 19 plus Olsen gives me 20 autographed Rookie of the Year balls…. Here my first cabinet housing some of the balls………102_0402

And here’s the 2nd one housing the balls, pretty soon i’m going to need another one since i have a few balls still out there…. I can’t wait to get deep into this project!! Thanks for reading Wicked out!!102_0706
